right. that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl that he is, in fact, a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz was born in california to an american mother, has dual citizenship. and following that report, senator cruz released a statement renouncing his canada citizenship. he says now the dallas morning news that i have dual citizenship, i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should only be an american. it's odd for me to say about a guy who i disagree with on many points, he couldn't be more right. the irony, of course, it mirrors the phony scenario of those who have been arguing to this day that president obama was born overseas, mostly in kenya and not eligible to be president. he was born to an american mother in the state of hawaii that was actually in america, by the way, but the birthers are all but silent when it comes to ted cruz. cruz has already visited the important presidential primary states of iowa and south carolina a

. maybe when we saw something at the mailbox in east texas and turned out to be someone's science project we thought it was a bomb. we scrolled, you know, actually after the world trade center and the pentagon maybe some neighborhood in texas was not going the target. and even if you are saying, you know, there's better safe than sorry. maybe the police did not -- to take after they figured out it was a school project. that's the kind of paranoia i like to spend time discussing in the book. it's easy to say look it's the great people. who believe in conspiracy theory. there are crazy folks in the book. but all sorts of every day people, people that watch c-span, people that, you know, can get seized by it at different time. we later realize that it was a little bit over the top. >> with the revelation about the nsa, the irs, in your view, should we be paranoid? >> i never want encourage to be paranoid. it's good to be scect -- i'm for good solid investigative journalism. >> what is one of your favorite conspiracists or leaders from our history? >> from our history. well, some of the inter
